Abstract: As educators in leisure and recreation studies, we should and can empower students through our teaching. The purpose of this article is to explore ideas and methods that we, as educators, might use to facilitate empowerment of students within the classroom. Specifically, this article discusses assumptions of power and privilege that underlie empowerment. Examples of how educators can disempower are also provided. In addition, biological, psychological, and sociocultural processes of empowerment as related to race, gender, and disability are examined.
